Open for business again after a fire, sees this eatery flourishing on the Saturday night that we dined with friends. It now looks fresh and brighter while keeping the ambiance for which it was previously well known. Starting with some delicious fresh pretzels, and veal "bitterballs" we had various main courses. The duck, and original crumbed (Vienna) schnitzel was apparently... More

I was there last night. It was the best sit down white tablecloth German meal I've had in years. The atmosphere was congenial. Wish I could go there frequently. Highly recommended.

Stuyvesant House was recently renovated and reopened 2 months ago. Other than the decor, nothing has changed - it is still charming and serves wonderful food. The staff are funny and service is quick. The servings are big and the food is amazing quality. Highly recommended for a fun night out with a group. Photo is of a daily special... More

SH is re-established after the fire a while ago. Apart from rather bright lighting it is excellent with the long standing dishes superbly prepared. Amazing long wine list and excellent staff

We went for dinner after watching a segment on SBS Food Safari featuring the owner of the restaurant. The restaurant was full on the Friday night that we visited. The ambience was reminiscent of restaurants in Europe. We ordered the chicken bitterballs and pretzel to start. My husband enjoyed the bitterballs and we both loved the pretzel. We shared the...

There is nothing tame or quiet about this place. Rudi and Max have been plying their wares for 40 odd ((pun intended) years. The food is excellent European cuisine and the freshest seafood. If you behave (or don't!!) Rudi may take you down to his cellar... The wine bible (ahem list) is extensive and a trap... a great trap if... More

Dining at Rudis and Max is always a pleasure excellent wine list from all over the world, food is super not typical German food but mixed with a flair off worldwide cuisine! Just be careful if ordering top wines, Rudi will always have a sip as soon as he opened the bottle! Top restaurant too service!

He hates australian people and has eaten in the kitchen the rest of the guests food from the plates.for example... More

Its been about 15 years since I have been to this restaurant, which means its doing something right to still be going!! I have not been there because I remember the owners were pushy and a bit superior. A friend made the booking and said it was refurbed !! I walked in and its exactly the same, a bit oppressive,...

A first time visitor, compliments of a work related Christmas lunch. The place was packed (squashed in like sardines) but was impressed with the service under the circumstances, we were served in a timely manner and meals arrived promptly, all piping hot, despite the masses that needed feeding. I experienced the enigmatic maître d; Rudi. All I can say, is... More
